Environmental Education workshop with Sinsoluka Foundation
Yesterday we had a visit from 22 kids of the Sinsoluka Foundation from Quito. Maartje, a dutch intern, who did a three months project on mixed species flocks in the reserve, had worked with that foundation as a volunteer and she had the idea of bringing some of the kids to the reserve. The Sinsoluka Foundation helps kids with a difficult family background and we thought it is a great idea to give them the opportunity to learn about the montane rainforest.
So the kids left Quito early in the morning and travelled to Las Tolas with a bus. But because of the heavy rainfalls in January we still had problems with a landslide on the road to the station and the kids took the milk truck to get down to the station.
